Pros

Had a wonderful supervising pharmacist. Most fellow employees were a delight to work with. Schedule was fairly flexible.

Cons

Pay scale was very low for the amount of work and responsibility required. Was required to go through the Rite Aid certification course and test even though I had been nationally certified for 5 years. Upper management had no clue what it was like to work in the store.

Advice to Management

Require district managers to actually work in the pharmacy for 2-3 years before being in a management position.

    Pros

    store team, family environment, customer interactions these things made up for a whole lot of bad

    Cons

    low pay, micromanaged from senior level who either forgot about the people who run their business or have never actually worked at store level. Poor communication on new programs, low pay compared to industry, aside from immediate supervisor never recognition for good performance, lots and lots to do, no tools nor payroll to ensure execution of plans

    Advice to Management

    communication, recognize that many associates who work for you actually would like to see the company succeed, the way to do this is not to belittle, give constant criticism, stop taking away benefits, show a little concern for those who bust their butts day after day to take care of your company! And mostly lets not forget customers, allow stores to deliver the excellent service you demand them to give, not another hat they must wear in hopes they don't all come tumbling down.
